speed loaders to fill 45 shot Hopper's?

Is there some sort of speed loaders to fill 45 shot Hopper's for pump action markers. I am going to assume the tubes would be one method. I was playing this weekend with a pump action and the Hopper take much too long to load.

Also curious about cocking method for pump action play. I am going to guess you lift the barrel upward to prevent double feeding.

There's some smaller triangular shaped 40 round tubes that one of the milsim companies sells. The neck is a little narrower so it'll fit into most of the lids I've seen.

I've got a couple of Winchesters with Dye pod lids hotglued on and the are slick to open and close.

If you are talking about the square style 45 rnd hopper I know of one. The rubber end cap that goes on plastic tubes (like the way they used to package barrels) will fit over the fill hole. Then cut a star out of the cap and you can use 10 rnd tubes to fill the hopper. I will post a pic if I can find my camera.

Those triangular 30 round Tac-Pods are made by Allen paintball(APP). I have several and they work great! Nice soft flipoff lids with a keeper. Three will fit in a double M-16 pouch perfectly(they made them triangular so they would fit that way on purpose) so it's easy and cheap to get carriers for them.
APP will only let you link to the main page so here it is: Allen Paintball Products

Tubes are good too, but slower.

Well, most pumps don't have detents so at the very least, keep the barrel level. What kinda pump you rockin'? Most of them are pretty good with only feeding one at a time - it all depends on how slow your stroke is...I totally meant that in a clean, paintball-related way...

Not to mention it also depends on your paint to barrel match.

Somebody on eBay has these cool 50 shot Hoppers.

eBay.ca: MICRO PAINTBALL HOPPER! 50 rounds! Perfect for pumps! (item 150148683972 end time 27-Aug-07 14:30:00 EDT)


Somebody on eBay has these cool 50 shot Hoppers. Now it would be possible to quickly load your hopper using pods.
